DIY Coat Tree for Under $7

$7.00
2 Hours
Easy

Our little guy now has a place to hang all of his dress-up gear (did you know that boys can amass quite a bit of that stuff?). We are still in the process of getting his room completely done, but this coat tree has helped us with the organizational part. The best part about it is that it cost under $7, took less than 2 hours and looks great!
Before you get started, gather your supplies.
Supplies needed:5 Conduit pipes (we used 5ft ones)Pipe Bender (we borrowed this from my Dad)2 Zip TiesColored Yarn/StringMeasuring Tape
